The Mayor Of London Totally Zinged Bloomberg Over His Soda Ban

Boris Johnson, finally free of all that serious election business, has got back to his main work — pithy one liners.

The Mayor of London, himself born in New York, was on the Daily Show last night and criticising his Big Apple counterpart’s ban on large sodas. He called himself a big fan of Michael Bloomberg (“I don’t see why he’s ruled himself out of the presidential thing”, he said tellingly), but added that “refugees from the soda tyranny in New York will have sanctuary in London.”
